THE ALL-AMERICAN LB SAM MILLS
The All-American LB Sam Mills was the epitome of what it takes to achieve legendary status in the game of American football. Listening to the interview below about the USFL Stars defense and what Sam Mills had to say about his 5'9 stature and how their "should be a computer to measure heart", he sounds like my older brother that I never had. When it comes to playing the linebacker position correctly, nobody in the history of the sport has been in on as many tackles as NFL Hall Of Fame Linebacker Sam Mills. Sam Mills had very little hope after being snubbed by the NFL and cut by Toronto of the Canadian Football League, but USFL Stars General Manager Carl Petersen seen what Sam Mills brought to a football team as one of the best General Managers in the history of the NFL. Petersen was actually the first General Manager I believe featured on the HBO hit series "Hard Knocks" and his invaluable expertise in scouting players proved to be spot on when he evaluated the leader of the USFL Stars Championship defenses.
NFL HALL OF FAME SAM MILLS
Sam Mills is not in the NFL Hall Of Fame, but he should be, as we believe he is the greatest MLB to play the game of American Football and carried himself appropriately off the field in a manner second to none.
Linebacker Sam Mills' career is probably the greatest underdog story ever told, as he did let anyone else define who he was on the football field, nor in life. He was a leader of men and it is why he was able to total 1,265 NFL tackles, as well being the leader of any defensive unit he took the field for. Sam did not get to play in the National Football League until he was 27 years old, which is a rarity in the NFL today and when you look at his interception numbers, he evolved with the game of football and got better daily on and off the field. This mental fortitude is the main staple of my coaching philosophy with our All-American recruits and the players I have had the honor to coach over the last few years at Scout Trout Elite. The players who can grasp the basic sports psychology behind the masquerade of deception of who they are, they can now climb to creating their own unique process, instead of letting outside variables control their every move.

2019 ALL-AMERICAN LINEBACKERS
Our 2019 All-American Linebackers careers have been well documented on our recruiting network Scout Trout Elite LLC over the years and all of them display outstanding athleticism at the position. We have a Middle Linebacker in Tyler Dobbs, who plays the game exactly the way Sam Mills played and he is also exactly the same stature. When you watch his tape, you will see the velocity he brings to his bone shattering tackles and when you get to Tyler Dobbs, he is the exact same leader that Sam Mills once was in the locker room. When it comes to covering ground and being able to deliver a big hit, Jimmy Bates lacks nothing as far as a Top 2019 LB recruit and fit into our 2019 ATH rankings category with his exceptional skill set on the offensive side of the football. Plain and simple, when you flip on Jimmy's tape, he can flat out do it all for a college football team.

ALL AMERICAN RB NICK SILVA
All American RB Nick Silva is exceptional on both sides of the football and we think everyone in the nation knows how special he really is as a running back. Nick will getting plenty of touches on the offensive side of the football, but when I watch how quickly he reacts as a safety or nickel package DB, I start to see another dominating force on the defensive side of the football. Nick Silva does not lack anything as far as athletics, character and unlimited potential in the world of college football today. Nick has been rated highly all season long and we cannot wait to watch this prime-time back in action at the 2019 College Football Today High School All-American Bowl.
TOP 2020 LINEBACKER RECRUITS
We have two Top 2020 Linebacker recruits who accepted their invitation to the 2019 College Football Today High School All-American Bowl and 2020 Linebacker Gabriel Means will be suiting up for Team West. Top 2020 Linebacker Anthony Zimmerman, who is coached by a former Penn State stand-out Linebacker at Hershey High School in Pennsylvania, is not allowed to play due to the State of Pennsylvania's rules for underclassmen participating in post season activity. Knowing Anthony, he would be all in for our events, but we cannot risk ANY student-athlete's high school playing eligibility moving into the 2019 high school football season. Both of these young men have a lot in common as far as why they were selected as All-Americans and both showed immense toughness in playing through injuries in the 2018 high school football season. Both of these backers are around the exact size needed to excel from sideline to sideline as superior college football linebackers and both have already began recruitment to some very prestigious programs like Baylor and Harvard. With the athletic measurables these two Top 2020 Linebacker recruits possess, I will be working with them more intuitively moving forward on nest level techniques that will help them eliminate all doubt moving forward into the college football recruiting process and next years 2020 High School All-American Bowl.
